Default Dual Monitors

Hello,

I have just hooked up a second monitor to my PC and its up and running fine.

I have the monitors set up in dual view and i just have a little question.

I have my left monitor set up as the primary and my desktop is been extended onto the next screen. But the tast bar is not been extended. So if i open a program and drag it accross to the next screem the program will stay in the tast bar in my left screen.. and that is a little anoying for me.

Is there a way i can get the task bar to span 2 screens?

There is a program called Ultramon. Very handy. I've got it running on my system right now.

I use UltraMon to extend my taskbar onto my 2nd monitor. Ultramon also allows you to have a panoramic wallpaper, or have 2 different wallpapers at the same time. its really neat and easy to use.
